EC number: 248-363-6
CAS number: 27247-96-7
Persistence: Standard degradation experiments showed that 2-EHN could
not be considered readily biodegradable. The poor biodegradability of
2-EHN might be the consequence of two factors, first the low occurrence
of micro-organisms able to use it as carbon source, and second its
inhibitory effect on bacterial growth even at low concentration. It is
assessed as 'P'.
Bioaccumulation: No experimental data on bioaccumulation are available.
Based on the log Kow and the QSAR estimate of BCF, it can be expected
that the substance is not bioaccumulative.
Toxicity: The substance is clearly not toxic as demonstrated under
8.1.3. Consequently, according to Annex XIII criteria, the substance is
not PBT. Summary: 2-Ethylhexyl nitrate does not meet the B criteria
based on screening data and also, it considered not to meet the T
criteria. It may meet the P/vP criteria according to screening data.
It is concluded that the substance is not considered as a PBT/vPvB
